Well for me piano time is a scarce thing and I dont practice per se. I dont even get to play every day! But I have a piece that I'll be working on and that will be my practice. Or I may noodle. Its all practice.

I can't say I've noticed people not liking Rachmaninoff. Many love him. In fact, his piano concertos are probably the most frequently programmed concertos in the typical orchestral concert (along with Grieg and Tchaikovsky.) Piano competitions are fi
